Best of Oceanside Green Oceanside Spotlight: Zero Waste Guide to Holiday Shopping: Featuring Local Businesses 

Getting ready for the holiday season? Holiday shopping can create a lot of waste. Some of this can be recycled, but not all! From the wrapping paper and tape to the plastic packaging many gifts come in, it’s time to re-write the guide to holiday shopping! We are going to explore three Zero Waste strategies for gifts that replace the typical idea of purchasing items at a big box store. Not only are these ideas planet-friendly, they are fun and easy too! First, give an “experience” as a gift. There are a variety of exciting Oceanside adventures to go on. Second, try making your gifts. A Zero-Waste recipe in the kitchen is a creative option, be sure to source your ingredients locally! If making gifts isn’t up your alley, and an experience gift isn’t suitable, don’t worry! Last, we explore Oceanside businesses that promote sustainability through Zero-Waste tactics. The idea is to shop at small, local stores that demonstrate this throughout their business model.

Best of Oceanside Spotlight - Member Spotlight: Marcy Browe Photography

When Marcy Browe moved from Venice Beach to Oceanside in 2014 she had just left a career in high tech marketing and decided to turn her passion for photographing people into a full time job.

Marcy’s grandfather was a professional photographer who started his business in the 1940s in Pittsburgh, PA. The love of photography was passed down to her and she learned the craft using his cameras. At first she considered photography a hobby and didn’t intend to make a living out of it. She graduated college with a degree in advertising and had a career in corporate marketing. After 15 years in a fast paced industry, she was burned out and started dreaming of starting a photography business. She finally had the chance to make this dream a reality when she left her corporate career and moved to Oceanside.

Bright Ideas for Safe and Energy-Efficient Holidays

(Source: SDG&E) - ​It’s that time of the year when many of us are decorating our home, business or office inside and out with festive strings of lights. Examples include lights over the fireplace, lights wrapped around trees and bushes and lights hanging along roof lines and eaves.

To help you save money on lighting costs this season and avoid safety hazards, here’s a list of timely tips.

Make smart lighting choices. LED holiday lights are the way to go! They use up to 80% less energy, are brighter and safer, and are cooler than incandescent lights. They’re easier to install—up to twenty-four strings of LEDs can be connected end-to-end without overloading a wall socket. Plus, they last ten times longer and have no filaments or glass to break.
